Gaining UNP General Election nominations:

Ranil keeps options open to Sajith faction members

UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe has decided to keep the option of giving UNP nominations to members of the breakaway Sajith faction to contest the forthcoming General Elections open until the last date of official closing of nominations.

UNP nomination lists are now being prepared at the Sirikotha UNP headquarters and the UNP Leader had taken this decision in view of the keenness shown by some members of the Sajith faction to regroup with the main party.

Another reason for this decision was the dislike shown by a majority of former MPs and party supporters to contest under  a new symbol other than the party’s Elephant symbol. Meanwhile, talks between the two factions are still ongoing regarding contesting the forthcoming General Election together.
